ON THE BASIS OF SEX

March 8 – 14
ON THE BASIS OF SEX

On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career. When Ruth takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.
Dir: Mimi Leder / 2018 / US / 120 min

“A winning, inspirational crowd-pleaser à la Hidden Figures, Leder’s film follows the early accomplishments of the young Ginsburg (an assured Felicity Jones, convincingly slipping into the trailblazer’s shoes), beginning in 1956.” – Tomris Laffly, Time Out

“A terrific Felicity Jones finds the fire and fury in the young Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she takes on her lifelong battle against gender discrimination.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“On the Basis of Sex is a serious movie that slowly earns its emotion and enlists our involvement. Even before the finish, it’s goosebumps all around.” – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
